Property Description Key Facts Master Bedroom 2 Bunk Rooms Living Room with fireplace, Grandfather Clock and TV/DVD Dining Room – Large modern table seats 8 Kitchen - Fully Equipped, Gas oven and hob Security We understand that your possessions are dear to you and this includes your bikes. You will be pleased to know that the garage is protected by an alarm system that transmits photographs of any intruders to a mobile phone. Numbers This property can comfortably sleep 10 adults. However, this would involve up to 3 people in the 2 bunk-rooms and a short queue for the bathroom. If you value your home comforts and want no more than one or two in each bedroom you may wish to limit your numbers to 6. If you're up for a sporting or adventurous training weekend/week, then you should be fine with 10. There are additional showers and bathrooms at the Mountain Bike centre – for a small charge. Rent rates & other information Prices vary, please use the bookings page for a quote. If you have any special or last minute requirements, let us know and will try to accommodate you. Check in time is 3:00pm and check out is normally at 11:00am However, let us know if you prefer a different time and we will be flexible if possible. You can't enjoy a holiday and relax if you have to work to a regimented schedule! Single Night Stays You are more than welcome to stay for a single night, although we would be surprised that you could come to such a beautiful place for such a short visit. However, a single night stay will be subject to a supplement and a minimum charge. Please ask for a quote. House Rules No smoking indoors please. Quiet Hours 10pm-8am – please respect our neighbours. No wild parties! Overnight guests strictly limited to those booked. £100 security deposit may be requested. Up to 2 well-behaved pets welcome. Downstairs only and not on furniture. Again, flexibility is our middle name, so we are open to requests and suggestions. Family Friendly On request, and free of charge, we will provide you with; 2 travel cots, a high chair and a dining booster seat. If you do not need these, they will be stored out of your way. There are lots of games, including darts, that are suitable for adults as well as children. Ventilation / Dampness As this is a very old house, it's only way to breathe is through the windows. If you keep the windows closed 24/7, the rooms will get damp and potentially mouldy. If you feel this would be a problem, then this house may not be what you are looking for. Midges in Summer Unfortunately, in the nice weather Glyncorrwg can be affected by midges. You can get eaten alive unless you use some form of protection. However, with precautions, we find people are able to get on and themselves. We will advise you further after booking, but let us know if you need more info beforehand please.More

About the neighbourhood
Glyncorrwg Glyncorrwg village is set in the beautiful Afan Valley in south Wales far enough away from the madding crowd to enjoy some peace and quiet but close enough to get to – less than an hour from Cardiff. History Glyncorrwg was once an important coal-mining centre, typical of the South Wales Valleys. With the end of the coal mining industry during the 1970s, buildings were cleared away, factories closed and people left the area to find new employment. In 1990 the local community decided to take advantage of the local scenery and complemented it with a series of ponds along the narrow valley. Trout fishing, coarse fishing, and canoeing are now popular sports in the area, plus miles of old flat railway trackbed lines and steep mountain slopes An old coal mine at Glyncorrwg a f...
